Midreshet Moriah and its dormitory are located in the Educational Wing at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, between the neighborhoods of Bet HaKerem and Bayit VeGan.
Our unique dormitory is home to all of our students together on one floor, which makes it much easier for you to get to know one another quickly and become comfortable.
Each room has its own private bathroom and shower, is attractively furnished and carpeted, and has its own refrigerator. The rooms are centrally heated. Each room is home to three girls.
The dormitory is supervised by resident madrichot (counselors) and an Em Bayit (house mother). In order to create an environment of kedushah at Midreshet, don’t bring things which will distract you and others from learning, and bring down the kedushah of our environment. This is your year to focus on growing in ruchniut! We don’t allow movies, TV programs, or videos in any form (DVD's, on hard drives or memory cards, or any other formats) and will confiscate them if they are brought. We don’t allow devices which play movies ( DVD players, etc.) and will confiscate them if they are brought. The only exception is an Ipod or similar MP3 player, which you may bring on condition that you promise not to use it to view video content. If a student uses a device for video, it will be confiscated.
Blackberries, Ipones, Itouch devices, and the like, are permitted. Since use of any phone in the Bet Midrash or classrooms is not permitted, all devices must be deposited in the baskets available for this purpose in each room.
Don’t bring expensive things which can “disappear,” like jewelry and very expensive electronics. You’ll want a camera, and maybe an MP3 player/Ipod, but keep them out of sight. We are not insured for valuables that are lost or stolen.
Faxes may be sent and received in our office (fax number 2-651-1524 or 646-929-4429). E-mail service is available to all students, including access to Skype.
On regular Shabbatot, you may spend Shabbat with family, friends or members of our faculty. If at least four students are staying in for Shabbat, they will be joined by a madrichah and enjoy Midreshet’s Shabbat meals. We are always happy to help set you up with places to go for Shabbat!
